The Beauty of Retrospect, September Actress Edition: Marion Cotillard

So what has Marion Cotillard been doing since I originally featured her here in March 2008?

Plenty, actually.  :-) The French actress has made several movies both sides of the Atlantic, and her Hollywood movies have won her large audiences.  She played impoverished Polish immigrant Ewa Cybulski in 2013's American drama The Immigrant, set in New York, as well as as Lady Macbeth in an upcoming new version of Shakespeare's Macbeth (directed by Australian filmmaker Justin Kurzel and produced in Britain), but she's also done some popcorn movies; namely, the 2012 Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises, in which she played the villainess Talia al Ghul, and more recently, she voiced the role of Scarlet Overkill in the French version of Minions.

She also played fantasy girl Adriana in 2011's Midnight In Paris, a comedy directed by Woody Allen.  Her fellow French actress Catherine Deneuve must have been incredibly jealous; in 1986, the grande dame of French cinema revealed in an interview that she wanted to work with Woody.  She still hasn't, but Marion Cotillard has.
